Perhaps it would sound surprising to most parents, teachers and pupils alike that the twin cities present some thousands of candidates for piano examinations conducted by the Trinity College London, The Royal Schools of Music (formally known as the ABRSM) and London College of Music (LCM). This borne out by the fact that some of the examiners, from these boards, stay in the twin cities for some months to complete the exams. Sometimes more than one examiner is deputed to our twin cities by the same board to complete the exam on time. What then is surprising is that, rarely one sees these budding musicians performing any ‘musical role, during the normal course of our city life, in any forum except at the venue of the next year’s examination.
We therefore provide a podium for performance. This festival is not proposed to be conducted as a typical music competition (1, 2, 3) but exclusively as a podium to showcase the musical talents of young and budding musicians in our twin cities. It is aimed at giving a great concert performance experience to the pupils and an immense satisfaction to the music teachers, parents and other music-lovers as well.
